Franciscans International has pointed out that a children's parliament has been established in Cameroon in 1998, and that little is known about its contribution to the actual enjoyment of the rights of the child, the setting up of structures promoting the access to rights by children, or any other program for the promotion of children's rights. Thus, doubts are raised on the real impact of this structure.
